WALTHAM SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL 



The history of Waltham Senior High School 
clearly illustrates the spirit of progress which has 
been and still is inherent in the citizens of Wal- 
tham. In 1826 a state law decreed that towns 
having over five hundred families should main- 
tain a more advanced school than the district 
school, which was about the only public educa- 
tional institution at this time. Waltham, although 
having fewer than the required five hundred 
families to come under the law, showed its fine 
spirit by soon forming plans for a higher school. 
After much discussion over the location, the town 
decided on the spot where the present North 
Junior High stands. 

The building erected at this spot received the 
title of the Town School. Its one classroom was 
on the ground floor, and for many years the 
Town Hall occupied the second story. To us, the 
equipment was crude and the customs strange. 
Three weeks in August sufficed for a summer va- 
cation, and on completion of his course the stu- 
dent simply left school, there being no formal 
graduation exercises. 

In 1849 the Town School became a true high 
school and expanded onto the second floor. Im- 
provements were made in the grading system, and 
mathematics and language courses were added 
among other changes. During the 1850's the im- 
portance of music was recognized by the adoption 
of music courses which have formed the basis for 
the present day enthusiasm for this branch of art 
in Waltham as exemplified by the Band and Or- 
chestra. Even at this early date the school gained 

Reference 



the distinction of preparing students directly for 
college, eliminating preparatory school training. 

When the North Grammar School was bulk 
on the site of the Town School in 1869, the High 
School moved to the corner of Church and School 
Streets and became known, in recent times, as the 
Old High. Here it served the Community well, 
and numbered among its faculty such fine teachers 
as the English author, George Gissing. 

With the incorporation of Waltham as a city 
in 1884, and its consequent expansion, a larger 
building became necessary. This was built in 
1902, and is the central structure of the present 
High School. Following the World War popula- 
tion growth became so great that large wings were 
added on the east and west ends of the central 
pile. These, completed in 1935, provided suffici- 
ent extra space to permit the use of one session 
instead of two as had previously been necessary. 
A year later a large modern gymnasium in the 
rear of the east wing was completed, permitting 
the old gym to be used for a cafeteria. The most 
recent addition to the school has been the five 
new rooms on the back of the east wing. These 
were completed in 1939. 

Growing on the interior, as well as the exterior, 
by the addition of many new courses and such de- 
partments as the excellent Commercial Department, 
the school has constantly maintained its high rank 
among secondary institutions, and stands as an 
enduring momument to the initiative and perse- 
verance of the citizens of Waltham.

CHARLES W. GOODRICH, Headmaster 

DEDICATION 

We, the class of 1940 of Waltham Senior High 
School, dedicate this Commencement Issue of the 
Mirror to our Headmaster, Mr. Charles W. Good- 
rich, whom we have come to honor and esteem. 
His friendly manner and sincere interest have 
given us encouragement through our high school 
days, and his memory will be with us long after 

WE HAVE LEFT WALTHAM HlGH. To HIM, THEREFORE, 
BOTH AS OUR HEADMASTER AND AS A WORTHY AND SIN- 
CERE GUIDE, WE EXPRESS OUR HEARTFELT APPRECIATION. 






Class Poem 

BE THOU OUR GUIDE 
I. 

The paths of life are numerous; 
Temptations to us throng; 
Each one his path must now select. 
God, show us right from wrong! 

II. 

Our preparation now complete, 

We start our lives today; 

That each may one day know success 

Desert us not, we pray. 

III. 
The door we soon shall open wide 
To face a troubled world. 
Protect us, and our goals we'll reach 
With banners yet unfurled ! 

IV. 
And as each one draws near the fork 
Of Life's uncertain way, 
His footsteps guide, with rectitude, 
Lest he should go astray. 

V. 
For those who err in choice of path, 
Or helpful gestures spurn, 
We ask a kindly word that they 
May to Thy path return. 

VI. 
And to the rest, who do select 
The path of righteousness, 
Extend Thy hand, we beg of Thee 
And let them not digress! 

VII. 
And now at last the time has come 
To swing the portals wide 
And face the future, well prepared. 
May Heaven be our guide!

Class of 1940 






Class History 



History might be defined as a backward look at 
past experiences. If it were possible to turn back 
the pages of time instead of only looking back- 
ward, any member of the class of 1940 could find 
innumerable experiences which he would gladly 
relive, packed in the three short years of his high- 
school life. 

Let us turn back the years to the day in Sep- 
tember, 1937, when 455 members of our class 
entered Waltham High School for the first day 
of a three-year stay. Standing upon the threshold 
of a new era in our lives, we looked ahead with 
vague misgivings as to whether our so-called 
superiors would haze us, and whether the teachers 
were as relentless and the work as hard as our 
predecessors had ominously warned us. 

A few weeks were spent reviewing forgotten 
work, memorizing the complex arrangement of 
rooms, and determining which recesses should be 
taken. When we were completely organized, we 
chose a nominating committee and elected our 
officers. In a close contest, Richard Johnstone 
won the Presidency, Bertillie Lochman was chosen 
Vice-President, Elizabeth Quigley, Secretary-Treas- 
urer, and Sumner Hammond, Auditor. Thus sup- 
plied with officers we became a unit to be known 
to all persons thereafter as the Class of 1940. 

The first football team to which we officially 
lent our support left much to be desired. It left 
a 26 — 6 loss at the hands of Newton to be 
avenged, and also convinced us that while Caesar 
had his Ides of March, Waltham High always 
has its last Thursday in November. 

In early December we witnessed our first Dra- 
matic Club Play — "Growing Pains", heartily 
enjoying the short interval while Robert Clemence 
was minus his trousers. 

With Christmas vacation over we concentrated 
our attention on basketball and hockey. In both 
these sports the boys from Waltham High made

a good name for themselves; the hockey team 
captured the Brown Trophy and the basketball 
team ended in the first division. 

By this time having learned that "All Gaul is 
divided into three parts," our Latin divisions 
cheerfully told us that our motto, "Labor omnia 
vincit", means "Work conquers all". After two 
quariers at Senior High School we had discovered

that work did have a lot to do with conquering 
and also with getting good marks. 

In March we first realized our social obliga- 
tions as students at Waltham High. The Soph- 
omore Dance came along with the Big Apple" 
as a feature, causing the young ladies to look in 
the mirror and the boys to straighten their ties, 
seek confidence to ask the girl of their choice to 
accompany them, and to ask Dad for an advance 
on next week's allowance. When the evening was 
over, everyone felt that he was far from being 
a "silly" sophomore, as our obliging upper class- 
men had labelled each of us. 

In June we saw our first graduation, discover- 
ing that we were not the only ones who loved 
Waltham High and that we were almost juniors. 
— What did you say? Sophomores? What are 
those things? 

June to September. Ah ! Bliss ! Spare time, 
rest, and no homework. Thank the Lord for 
vacations! 



In September, 1938, two things of note hap- 
pened to Waltham: the hurricane and the entrance 
of the distinguished members of the Class of 
19:0 into our institution of learning as juniors! 

Soon, when our unused brain-cells had been put 
into action again, we chose those who were to 
control our destinies for the coming year. Again 
Dick Johnstone was chosen President; Bertille 
Lockman, Vice-President; Marion Wagner, Sec- 
retary-Treasurer; and Sumner Hammond, Auditor. 

Led by Phil Caminiti, the football team of 
1938 turned in a surprisingly successful record, 
yielding only to Medford and Lynn English and 
climaxing the season with a 7 — 7 tie with Brock- 
ton. The late period touchdown had all standing 
up and cheering. We left Brockton with a dis- 
tinct feeling of satisfaction considering the game 
a moral victory for Waltham. 

We were not, however, as successful in hockey 
as we had been in football. The duo of Schmaltz 
and Hedges proved deadly in the Needham game,

and Bob Mason added the scoring power neces- 
sary for B. C. High to beat Waltham by the tigh" 
score of 4 — 3. Thus entering the playoffs with 
two defeats, one lonely Framingham goal was 
enough to eliminate our team. A smooth-running 
basketball team took the Suburban League crown 
and added to the success of Waltham High 
athletically. 

With time marching on as usual, the Class of 
1940 soon found that spring was upon them, — 
spring, love, and the Junior Prom. Carefully 
planned and executed by a competent committee 
and aided even by the weatherman, the greatest 
social event of the Junior Year was a success in 
every way, even financially. 

In June we said good-bye to the Class of 1939, 
watching many friends and companions regretful- 
ly leave the school for the last time. It was hard 
to believe that two years of our high-school life 
were behind us and that we were now seniors, CONSTANCE FULLER

those lofty and almighty individuals whom we had 
always envied and whom we had looked up to 
with reverence. 

Returning from ten weeks of leisure, we seniors 
found that there were now freshmen in the school 
and that the corridors were more congested than 
ever. Settling down, however, to the well-accus- 
tomed routine, we again elected our officers. For 
the third time, Richard Johnstone was chosen 
President; Bertillie Lochman, Vice-President; 
Marion Wagner, Secretary-Treasurer; and Robert 
Martin was selected as Auditor. 



With the formality of election completed, the 
Class of 1940 devoted their energy every Saturday 
to cheering on the football squad. Capably led 
by Co-Captains Johnstone and Goguen, the team 
fought bravely although in many cases luck was 
against them. 

Memory of Thursday, November 30, 1939: 

When the Brockton band marched in the for- 
mation of a turkey, it played the death march, 
and many of us are still wondering whether that 
selection was for the turkey or for Waltham High.

Recalling the hockey campaign, we remember 
that the team made the best record since L936, 
winning seven straight games and losing to Need- 
ham in the play-offs only because luck was against 
them. 

In the midst of the hockey season came the 
Christmas vacation and then the Senior Dance. 
Held in early January, the affair was in all ways 
a great success, breaking exactly even financially. 

Soon after the Senior Dance the Picture Com- 
mittee was elected: then we all realized that our 
Senior year and our brief sojourn in Waltham 
High was rapidly approaching the end. 

In April it was shown that the Class of 1940 
was not lacking in dramatic talent. The Senior 
Play "June Mad" was played successfully to a 
capacity audience. "Penny" and her red dress, 
"Elmer", and "Milly Lou" made a hit with the 



audience; while the cast was more interested in 
getting the ice cream for "Chuck" on time with 
as little depreciation as possible. 

The remainder of the year was taken up mainly 
by the exchange of pictures and plans for gradu- 
ation and the future. 

Now as we stand here and look back at the 
faint footprints left in the sands of time by the 
Class of 1940, we feel that whatever the future 
may hold, the days spent at Waltham High will 
always live in our memories as the happiest and 
most advantageous years of our life. Wherever 
our separate paths may lead us, let us hope that 
I he knowledge we have obtained here will serve 
us well, and that the members of the Class of 
1940 will make their marks in the vast world 
stretching before us as we again stand on the 
threshold of another portion of our lives. 

Edwin S. Briggs. 






Class Will 



Know all men by these presents, that we, the 
Class of 1940, being of sound and disposing mind 
and memory, and wishing to direct in what man- 
ner our estate shall be disposed of after our de- 
parture, do make and publish this our last Will 
and Testament, hereby revoking all former wills 
by us at any time heretofore made. After the pay- 
ment of our just debts, we bequeath and devise 
as follows: • 

To Mr. Goodrich, our distinguished and ap- 
preciated headmaster, we leave a machine that 
automatically repeats at the end of each assembly 
— "First two rows may file", also, we leave some 
new school desks in order that the present en- 
graved twosomes will not keep next year's seniors 
day-dreaming by arousing their curiosity as to 
whom the initials stand for. 

To Mr. Ward, our indispensable submaster and 
frequent participant in lively arguments with his 
IV A 1 class, we leave a senior English class who 
will really "Scorn delights and live laborious 
days" — quote from Milton, just in case you had 
forgotten. 

To Miss Woodward, the head of our business 
department, we leave the television system to en- 
able her to be in her office, in the type-writing 
room, and telephoning all at the same moment. 

To Miss Allen, our verbs, adjectives, and ellip- 
tical clause addict, we leave a class of Secretarial 
Seniors whose mentality ratings will equal just 
half as high a score as those of her IV G boys. 

To Bobby Lane, our pink and white, dimpled 
face, class baby, we leave a petit, woolly lamb's 
jacket — need we say what for? 

To Janice Loving, a girl whose favorite ex- 
pression is, "What will we do tonight?" — we 
leave that curly-haired, brown-eyed senior who, 
we are sure, will supply a very suitable answer. 

To Our Inferiors? — the class of 1941, we leave, 
sorrowfully, the lofty position of dictatorship of 



the school, a new set of freshmen and sophomores 
to oppress, and a succession of events similar to 
those which brought us so much pleasure during 
our all too short reign as seniors. 

From Richard Daniels, our good looking six 
foot three inch senior, we have permission to 
leave at least his last three inches to that cute little 
trick "Splinter" Doherty, who is master of cere- 
monies down in the cafeteria. 

To Marion Wagner, a true example of a sweet 
and demure senior, we leave a roll of adhesive 
tape to aid in keeping her fingers crossed in fu- 
ture years for the same hero that she has crossed 
them for during her high school days. 

To David Fitzgerald, we leave some soothing 
syrup for his victims, to take out the sting of his 
pungent sarcasm. 

To Henry Kelly, our modern version of the 
cave man, we leave a book of ten easy lessons 
on how to become the world's champion prize 
fighter — he certainly has all the requirements. 

To Hector Rousseau, our short, fiery, "General- 
issimo" of the ice, we leave that small bundle of 
"Sweetness" who resides on the well known 
island. 

To Betty Andrews, our Jane Arden of the 
senior class, we leave our thanks for the fine 
work she has done in writing our "Senior High 
School Notes" and all our best wishes for a very 
successful future. 

To Guy Sanderson, we leave the suggestion 
that he find a Waltham High girl who will com- 
pare favorably with girls from neighboring cities 
to prevent his Oh! so scarce energy from being 
exhausted by too numerous trips outside the 
limits of our fair city. Give us a "break" Guy. 

To Anne Drury, better known as " that kin- 
dergarten Mae West" (quote from the Senior 
Play), we leave Mervyn — Good Luck, Anne! 

To the Boys' Gym, we leave, upon request, a 
six-foot mirror to eliminate the "scramble" for 
possession of the two by four brass plate on the 
gym door now used for the sake of vanity. 



Class of 1940 • > ♦ 



To the Boys and Girls of the Junior Class, we 
bequeath the "Student Advises Student" corre- 
spondence which we have been posting on the 
bulletin board in the library. Who knows — one 
of you may take the place of Dorothy Dix or 
George Antheil in some future year. 

To Gavin Carter, that speedy ball toter of the 
backfield, we leave a cook book so he may learn 
a few new dishes to supplement his well known 
specialty, the Bud Carter Goulash. 

To Edwin Briggs, the human "whiz" of our 
class, we leave the position that Clifton Fadiman 
now holds on the "Information Please" program. 

To Barbara Weeks, our D. A. R. girl, who is 
first in marks, 
first in music, 
first in the hearts of her fellow classmates, we 
leave our tribute to a very lovely person. 

We hereby nominate and appoint Miss Allen, 
Mr. Mitchell, and Mr. Ward, all of Waltham, 
County of Middlesex, and Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts, as co-executors of this, our last 



Will and Testament, and we hereby direct said 
Executors to pay all our just debts, costs of ad- 
ministration, and inheritance taxes out of our es- 
tate, and we hereby request that they be exempt 
from furnishing any surety or sureties on their 
official bonds. 

In testimony whereof we hereunto set our 
hand and seal and publish and declare this to be 
our last Will and Testament, in the presence of 
the Witnesses named below, this fifth day of 
June, A. D. 1940. 

Signed— The Class of 1940 

— by Wilma Greenlaw. 

Signed, sealed, and published by the said Class 
of 1940 as and for their last Will and Testament, 
in the presence of us, who at their request, and 
in their presence, and in the presence of each 
other, have subscribed our names as witnesses 
thereto.

Codicil To The Last Will And Testament Of The Class Of 1940 



To Whom It May Concern.-' 

Know all men by these presents that we, the 
class of 1940, being of sound and disposing mind 
and memory, and wishing to direct in what man- 
ner our estate shall be disposed of after our de- 
cease, do make and publish this Codicil to our 
last Will and Testament dated June 5, L940, 
hereby ratifying and confirming said Will in all 
respects except as changes by this instrument. 

We hereby nominate and appoint Barbara 
Weeks to be the Executrix of this, the Codicil to 
our last Will and Testament, and we hereby re- 
quest that she be exempt from furnishing any 
surety or sureties on her official bond. 

To Priscilla Gray, our girl most likely to suc- 
ceed in the senior class, we leave this alarm clock 
set to gain in time so that instead of the conven- 
tional twenty-four hours a day, she will have 
twenty-seven. In these three additional hours she 
will be able to take lessons in deep sea diving, 
Russian folk dancing, and also playing the slide 
trombone. 



To Robert Clemence, the boy most likely to 
succeed in our class of 1940, we leave this steel 
filing cabinet to keep a record of all his present 
and future achievements. 

To Richard Johnstone, our most popular boy 
by a majority vote, wc leave not the book of 
"How to Make Friends and Influence People," 
which Dick doesn't need, but we leave an anony- 
mous book titled "How to Find Time to Study 
and Still keep My Friends." 

To Bert i I lie Loch man, our girl with the person- 
ality plus and also the most popular girl of the 
1940 class, we leave this little portable house as 
a retreat for her when HER public and the re- 
porters demand too much of her attention in 
putting her radiant personality into the headlines, 
thus leaving her no time for rest. For quiet places 
to situate this house, we suggest Poppenesset 
Beach on the cape, Hartland, Vermont, in the 
"sticks", and Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, which 
contains at least two other houses now. 






To Robert Martin, the 'andsome lad with that 
twinkle in his eye, we leave this bag of candy 
kisses. If your present "la femme" charm grows 
old some day, Bob, (which we doubt) , we are 
sure that these kisses will suffice for an evening 
or two. 

To Ruth Dermott, the Venus of the class of 
1940, we leave this little camera for her future 
use when she is a busy photographer's model pos- 
ing for such advertisements as refrigerators, 
Luckies 2-1, and Lux toilet soap along with the 
Hollywood stars. 

To Hugh Gardner, our 1940 Jack Benny, we 
leave this Jiminy Cricket, his private conscience, 
that will warn him to stop on the safe side of 
his clowning. 

To Robert Stevens, our Adolphe Menjou, better 
known as the best dressed boy in the class of 1940, 
we leave these one-way-stretch, emerald colored 
garters to prevent that bulging at the ankles 
which is sure to show with rolled up breeches. 

To Noel Temple, whose clothes put her right 
into the debutante class, we leave this genuine 
talon zipper to save her the embarrassment of ever 
being pointed out as a horrible example of the 
modern disease — Gaposis ! 

To Robert Clemence, our next Mickey Rooney, 
we bestow on Bob this Pinocchio doll for a pup- 
pet show of the future in token of our belief that 
he will outstrip Walt Disney's finest achievements. 

To Hope Goodell, voted our best actress after 
her wonderful performance of "Penny" in the 
senior play, we leave this box of Kleenex to take 
care of any excess facial cream that she might use 
such as that which she displayed in the South 
Junior Auditorium. 

To Elizabeth Quigley, our class social light, we 
leave this Hawaiian guitar and a hound-trip ticket 
to Honolulu to serenade the someone, unknown 
to us, who sent her that cute grass skirt and lei. 



To Dick Johnstone, our local replica of the 
highly publicized "Superman", we leave a large 
bottle of the perfect remedy for all discomfiture 
due to overindulgence in the line of athletic en- 
deavor, Sloans' Liniment! 

To Edna Mitchell, our most athletic girl, we 
leave this set of Indian Clubs to keep those mus- 
cles always in trim. Don't forget your daily 
dozen, Edna. 

To Mildred Curran, our exotic black-haired 
glamour girl, we leave this sarong (latest Adrian 
design) so, at her first opportunity, she may show 
Dorothy Lamour what real competition is. 

To Phillip Vincello, the ready, willing, and al- 
ways able bookworm, we leave, with regrets, this 
handsome pair of form-fitted, cut-glass, horn- 
rimmed spectacles, which, we feel, will be a dire 
necessity if he continues to keep up the pace 
which won him the title of most studious boy. 

To Anne Johnson, the most studious senior girl, 
we leave this comic magazine with the suggestion 
that she drop her books for a while and enjoy a 
little diversion. 

In testimony whereof we hereunto set our 
hand and seal and publish and declare this to be 
the Codicil to our last Will and Testament, in the 
presence of the Witnesses named below, this fifth 
day of June, A. D., 1940.

Class Prophecy 



On Wednesday, the 29th day of November in 
the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred 
and thirty nine, lifting up my voice, I proclaimed 
that Waltham would upset Brockton by one touch- 
down. From this, my initial adventure in prog- 
nostication, I arise with my head bloody but un- 
bowed, and with an optimism which will not be 
downed I am leading with my chin again. 

I ask youj therefore, to visualize your prophet 
as a radio broadcaster, which role he has chosen 
more from plot necessity than from aptitude, 
bringing you a description of an Inaugural Parade 
from Washington sometime in the distant future. 
"This is David Fitzgerald speaking from a bal- 
cony above Pennsylvania Avenue where I will at- 
tempt to describe to you the Inaugural Parade and 
at the same time keep in touch with the rest of 
the country by means of news flashes. Contrary 
to the usual custom the Inaugural Parade is being 
held without the President. President Johnstone's 
social secretary, Eleanor Betts, thought it would 
be nice if the President received everyone who 
had his High School picture at the Victory Ball 
last night. At last reports the President's arm is 
still paralyzed but physicians were beginning to 
hope. Today the Chief Executive's place is being 
taken by his bodyguard, Willie Richards. Since 
the President is a bachelor, his campaign manager, 
Al Gauthier, conducted a Nation-wide contest for 
the position of First Lady. Riding in the Presi- 
dential Car are the twelve finalists: Ruth Belli - 
veau, Elaine Cahill, Marjorie Dow, Fay Chapin, 
Marjorie Farnsworth, Genevieve Chiasson, Mari- 
lynne Collomb, Marjorie Freeman, Marion Jones, 
Mary Keefe, Dorothy Lawson, and Janice Loving. 

Closely following the President's car is cam- 
paign manager Al Gauthier and those famous 
political bosses: Albert Burke, Hal Neelon, Walter 
Foote, Ben Algeri, Walter Cassidy, Ronny Mac- 
Arthur, Gerald Burgess, Paul Trombley and Ed. 
Flannery; accompanied by their official hostesses: 
Wiliua Greenlaw, Rita Dube, Anne Drury, Regine 



Hanna, Betty Mosher, Madeline O'Hare, Dorothy 
Peterson, Estelle Shields, and Marv Malone. 
Gauthier was always a good politician and could 
put anyone in office except himself. 

Next comes General Robert Collins, Army 
Chief of Staff, and his staff generals, Rigoli, Besso, 
Butcher, Janes, McClellan, and McHugh. Ellen 
Mac Alpine, Barbara Page and Denise Roth are in 
charge of the women's battalions. Following the 
Army is the Diplomatic Corps led by the newly 
appointed Ambassador to the Irish Free State, Mr. 
Philip Vincello (When asking for the appoint- 
ment, Mr. Vincello told the President that he 
simply had to get back to the Old Country). 
With Ambassador Vincello are Consuls William 
Connelly, Don Morrison, John Archdeacon, Clar- 
ence Arsenault, Lawrence Eden, Arnold Sarman- 
ian, Phil Jones, Paul Mulvihill and Paul Muise, 
delegates to the newly-formed German Provinces. 

The next group is the President's Cabinet, 
which seems to be built around Mr. Edwin Briggs, 
Secretary of Education. Mr. Briggs intends to 
make the study of Astronomy a required subject. 
Ted always spent a lot of time gazing at the 
moon. 

Accompanying Briggs are Sec. of the Treasury 
Bob Stevens (always good at high finance — re- 
member the buses to Revere), Sec. of War Betty 
Andrews (when it comes to fighting Betty knows 
the answers) and Secretaries Priscilla Grey, Es- 
telle Dessell, Irene Desmond, Mary Dolan, Eliz- 
abeth Crane, Betty Crook, Marjorie Melanson and 
Irene Millar. In the corner of the car is Sec. 
of Labor Conrad Teele asleep. Questioned on his 
views concerning labor, Mr. Teele replied 'I'm 
agin it." 

Miss Ruth Hogan, Mr. Gauthier's secretary has 
asked me to acknowledge over the air these tele- 
grams of congratulation. The first one is from 
the Waltham Mother's Club and is signed by 
President Dorothea Barnicle, Jeanne Berggren, 
Barbara Boyd, Helen Brady, Barbara Brewster, 



Class of 1940 — . — ..—,_„_„_. — , 



Millie Cm-van, Ruth Dermott, Barbara Floyd, 
Marjorie Helhier, Annabelle Viles, Florence Scho- 
fielJ and Josephine Ricciardi. 

All signed their maiden names lest the Presi- 
dent fail to recognize them. Pinned to this tele- 
gram is one from the Mother's Club Auxiliary 
signed by Roy Leaf, Peter Muise, Edward Millen, 
John Neil, Gerald Richards, Charles Blanchard, 
Richard Daniels, Everett Haines, William Petrie 
and Richard Larson. 

That is a new one on me, but all clubs have 
auxiliaries, so why not Mother's Clubs? 

I think I hear the Marine Band! Are those 
drum majorettes? Yes! Eleanor Kelly, Helen 
heavy, Paillette Lewis, Frances Cnsack, Jean Mac- 
Kinnon, Eleanor Turner, Pauline MacLennan, 
Ruth Watte, Evelyn Whalen, Marion Walsh, 
Virginia Johansen and Dorothy Harper are right 
out front. My assistant, Roland LaMontagne, 
tells me that this is the first year the Marine Band 
has admitted women to their ranks. Also in the 
band arc our famous musicians: Ruth Dahlia, 
Marjorie Daley, Louise Hickie, Rita Hamcl, 
Eleanor Magazu, Betty McDougall, Florence 
Le/ievre, Rita McGough, Isabelle Marlinska and 
Rose So/tile. 

Here's a news flash, Bob Com/or, the Boston 
Bruins center has just been arrested for murder. 
It seems that when Hector Rousseau shot the win- 
ning goal of the Stanley Cup finals, Russ Brown. 
the official scorer, gave the assist to Perley Grant— 
quite naturally Connor shot him. Nathan Kane, 
Connor's lawyer, has pleaded justifiable homicide. 

District Attorney, Martin Coleman, has sum- 
moned John Folio, Rudolph Fiorelli, Marjorie 
Johnson Pearl LeBlanc, Eleanor Meisner, Marie 
Lc Fort, Carmello Caminiti, Edith Maher, Erna 
Smith and Angela Niose as witnesses. 

Now back to the parade; the members of the 
Senate are passing in review. In the first car is 
Senator James LaCava, leader of the minority 
bloc. Mr. LaCava has spent twenty years in Con- 
gress and never voted "Yes" on a single bill. 
With Mr. LaCava are Senators Doris Whitcomb, 
Bertillie Lochman, Barbara Weeks, Ruth Kauf- 
man, Catherine Sousa, Patricia Claflin, Eleanor 
Morash, Anne Pemberton, Joyce Turner, Marjorie 



Reidt, Dot Poirier, and Ruth Pottle. As you 
probably know LaCava is the last man in the 
Senate. 

Another telegram has just been received from 
the Joe & Nemo's Goulash Joint, signed by the 
owner Bud Carter and his assistants: Buzzy Cane, 
Hank Kelly, Sumner Hammond, Fred Kennedy, 
Walter Harvey, Wilbur Fancy, Paul Britton 
Robert Lane, and Vincent Morreale. 

Looking around the press box, I see such fa- 
mous journalists as Roger Gallagher, George 
Shedd, Richard Southwick, Carol Thurston, Muriel 
Healey, Charles Manning, Stella Strazdas, Ann 
Tebbcls, Celia Shapiro, Evelyn McKenzie, Phyllis 
Thome, and Nellie Tamulewicz. 

We have just had another flash, Mr. Robert 
Clemence expert on everything, has just applied 
for the right to broadcast a television puppet show 
to Mars. Mr. Clemence admitted that he did not 
expect the Martians to appreciate his broadcast, 
"But", he said, "Think of the publicity." Assist- 
ing Clemence are Jeanne Fiuan, Evelyn Hurley, 
Barbara Ducey, Edith Lovequist, Mildred Lind- 
strom, Helen LeForl, Arline White, Mary Little- 
wood, Constance Rigoli, Madalene Salamonc, Jean 
Voyer and Mary Damoisseau. 

We wish to remind you that immediately fob 
lowing this broadcast, there will be a broadcast 
from Miami giving play by play the game be- 
tween the Boston Red Sox and the Miami Chiffon 
Stockings. The starting lineup is as follows: 
For the Chiffon Stockings in the left field is the 
Ty Cobb of the feminine baseball world, Helen 
Bonica - - in C F. Virginia Adams, and in R. F. 
that famous ball hawk and base stealer Hilda Ber- 
man. At 3rd base is Helen Coleman. At short 
stop heavy (and I do mean heavy) hitter and 
fancy fielder Constance Fuller — at 2nd base 
Phyllis Ha //sen - - at 1st base Barbara Hodgkins 
and the battery Grace Lipps and Arleue 
Mehring. 

The Red Sox — In left field Ted Barllett - 
In C. F. Reed Brown — In R. F. Joe Defiua — 
at 3rd base Theodore Broivn — at short stop 
John Forsler — at 2nd base Robert Peeling — at 
1st base Charles Small and the battery John and 
Stanley Long.

Ah! a telegram from Johnson's Drug Corp. 
The corporation is composed of students who 
drove the store into bankruptcy by keeping out 
cash customers, then took it over to save its repu- 
tation. The message is signed by Presidents John 
Fuzzy Forsdick, Don Cox, Guy Sanderson, Don 
MacLennan, Marion Munster, Eleanor McKenna, 
Phyllis Wanberg, Robert Nelson, Bob Dwyer, and 
Priscilla Wetherbee. 

Back to the parade again — here comes a very 
natty division, attired in white jockey satin embel- 
lished with gold braid and carrying polished 
silver shovels — Washington's Street Cleaners led 
by Lawrence Tobin and including Robert Martin, 
Charles Bright, Charles Broderick, Grover Bar- 
berick, Lloyd Carlson, Sam Belliveau, Anthony 
Bertolami, John Cain, Benedict Buono, Francis 
Cacciatore, and Americo Mega. 

Here's a telegram from far away Algeria from 
Sergeant Robert Doyle of the French Foreign 
Legion. It seems that Ken Eberhard invented an 
electrical caddy so there was nothing for loopers 
Tom Doyle, Bob LeBlanc, Bill Tappley, Hugh 
Gardner, Bob Whitney, Pete Rizzo, John Rogers 
to do but join the Foreign Legion. Rumor hath 
it that the boys are teaching the Arabs to play 
golf — with no competition it looks like a caddy 
heaven. "Stick around, boys, there'll be doubles." 

At this time we also wish to remind you that 
tonight over these stations George Manning will 
bring you blow by blow an account of the world's 
heavy weight championship boxing bout between 

"Terrible Trinkets Ruggles" and "Invincible Vin- 
cent Bosworth.'' At the weighing ceremonies to- 
day, which were attended by Managers George 
Killam and Carl Erikson, and promoter Brad. 
Daniels (called the honest brakeman because he 
never stole a freight car) it was announced that 
Philo Strickland would referee. The eminent 
betting commissioner (bookie to you) Tommy 
Pierce announced that the odds were 9 — 10 and 
"You can have 'em." 

A congratulatory missive has just been received 
from the feminine start in the New Picture "Rule 
Britannia" — Elvera Algeri, Josephine Fanara, 
Marie Alvarez, Marie Bry, Carntela Aquilia, 
Josephine Barbanti, Angelina Demeo, Margaret 



Bonomo, Concetta Bordenca, Rose Castellano, 
Christine Cusano, Marie Meola, Antoinette Tor- 
tor ella and Rosalie Giuliano. 

To my mind the best part of the parade is 
passing now — the Fire Department. The di- 
vision is lead by Chief Robert Torrey who has 
swallowed enough smoke (not from burning 
buildings) to make him immune forever to smoke 
prostration. Immediately following are the Fire 
Laddies Charles Hayes, Ray Drury, Herbert Hick- 
man, Adam Enos, Alfred DiGregory and Fire 
Lassies, Marguerite DeVoe, Kathleen De Coster, 
Dorothy McAdoo, Delia Palumbo, Angelina Rizzi, 
Nita Robertson, and Ruth Johnston. 

News Flash — The P. G. Students at Waltham 
High have gone on strike because they refused 
to listen to the same anecdotes, illustrating lec- 
tures, year after year. Superintendent of Schools 
Gilbert Mahan said the school would not com- 
promise and he was supported by the following 
teachers: Marion Wagner, Ann Burke, June Carl- 
son, Helen Connor, John Cronin, Helen Dunn, 
Anne Harrington, Ruth Leishman, Frank Smith, 
01 ga Under hill, and Gordon Smith. 

Following the Fire Department comes the Traf- 
fic Division of the Washington Police led by Cap- 
tain Greg Fortune. Greg knows the punishment 
for every possible traffic violation (experience is 
truly a great teacher) . Under the captain's com- 
mand are Anthony Alberti, William Bushey, 
Gaeton Coraccio, Armand Coutu, George Dorval, 
James Fitzgerald, Edward Hamm, John Hickey, 
Francis Kelley, Bruce Klint and Walter Kokidko. 

The Police Contingent marks the end of the 
parade. The Presidential Party will repair im- 
mediately to the White House for the Inaugural 
Ball, where entertainment will be provided for 
all tastes — The newest illegal review (starring 
Lizzie Quigley) has been imported from Broad- 
way. Liz is supported by: Muriel Aucoin, Lor- 
raine Begin, Phyllis Bowman, Marilouise Calla- 
han, Louise Carrabes, Carmella Casella, Germaine 
Chiason, Marguerite Clark, Edgherita Carr, Mil- 
dred Cotton, and Gertrude Coyle. 

The wise boys say that Paul Miele, Marshall 
LaForet, Tom Burley, Bobby Clark, Francis Terrio, 
Rosario Giuliano and the rest of the Hydroxide 



Class of 1940 —»~«—o— «—•—»— «-—»—* 



Radical (the O. H. group) have deserted Scollay 
Square in favor of Washington since the program 
was announced. 

For the higher minds in the audience (if there 
are any) a group of dramatic players featuring 
Hope Goodell, Eleanor Joyal, Harriet Fennell, 
Rita Foley, Louise Flodin, Helen Hickey, fane 
Hojfses, Ruth Mart el I, Priscilla Mayo, Claire 
Nolan, and Doris Newman has been chosen from 
all the leading plays of the moment to give a 
series of short sketches at the Ball. 

Dancing will be to the music of Jack Wolk 
and his famous band including Jean Peckbam, 
Florence Parker, Myrtle Polley, Edwin Prescott, 
John Ouinn, George Sangermano, Clifford Sheliu, 
Basil Vanaria, Melvin Norton, Robert MacKusick, 
Ralph Lodge and Paul LeBlanc. 

And a last news' flash - — the victorious U. S. 



Olympic Team comprised of Edna Mitchell, Bar- 
bara Connor, Louise Monaco, Edivard Cain, Edna 
Greene, Alary Mase, Louis Lituri, Don MacClellan, 
Thomas Walker, Mimi Rizzo, Irene Zografos, 
Fred Scammon, Charles Schaufus, Helen Schojield, 
Billy Park and Doris Roughsedge will be enter- 
tained at the Stork Club by Anne Johnson, blues 
singer, successor to Ella Fitzgerald. Her chorus 
of beauties from left to right are Betty Wash- 
burn, Noel Temple, Frances Webster, Ruth Uhlin, 
/Winnie Giamo, Antoinette Cucinotta, Nina Ferro, 
Pauline Galinauski, Clara Kotsifas, Elouise 
Lackenbauer, Sylvia Levison and Marguerite Lupo. 
Roy Sweeney (in the control room) is making 
despairing gestures, so I gather that my time is 
more than up. This is station W. H. S. signing 
off. 

David Small Fitzgerald, 1940.

Class Advisors 




MR. GEORGE L. WARD, Sub-Master 

Senior Class Advisor, Faculty Manager 

of Baseball 



Mr. George L. Ward, our genial Submaster and 
Senior Advisor, has been associated with the 
Waltham Senior High School for thirty-five years. 
A graduate of Phillips Andover Academy, he 
furthered his education at Yale, where he received 
his B. A. degree. Later, at George Washington 
University, Washington, D. C, he received his 
M. A. degree. 

During the time he has been in the High 
School, he has served in the past as Director of 
Senior Plays, turning out many fine performances. 
For thirty-four years he has been Faculty Man- 
ager of Baseball, and takes as keen an interest to- 
day in the success of the team as he did when 
first appointed. For some time he was Advisor 
to the junior class, but at the present time the 
large senior class requires all of his attention. In 
1936 he was made Submaster. 




CLASS ADVISORS 

Mr. Frank Sheehy, Juniors, left; 

Mr. Ralph Hollis, Sophomores, right 



Class of 1940 — 



Mr. William Gallagher has been at Waltham 
High since 1936. He is a graduate of Boston 
College, where he received his A. B. degree, 
specializing in Latin and history, both modern 
and ancient. 

He is now attending Harvard Graduate School, 
and is working for an Ed.M. degree, majoring in 
Secondary School Administration. 

He has always been Special Advisor to the 
Sophomore College Course, and now in addition 
is Freshman Class Advisor. He is also actively 
engaged as Faculty Manager of the tennis team. 

Mr. Francis Sheehy came to Waltham High in 
1928. He is an alumnus of Dartmouth College, 
where he was greatly interested in biology and 
economics. Although studies occupied much of his 
time he still found the opportunity to captain 
both the hockey and golf teams. His proficiency 
in the latter sport especially is indicated today by 
the consistently low scores he makes on even 
"tough" courses. Three years ago, in 1937, he 



was made advisor to the junior class, whose 
members marvel much at his intimate knowledge 
of biology and their own mental processes. 

Mr. Ralph Hollis, popularly known as "The 
Keeper of the Keys", was elected to the teaching 
staff of the High School in 1924. He is a grad- 
uate of Thayer Academy and Boston University, 
where he specialized in physics. 

For eight years, from 1924 to 1932 he served 
as Junior Class Advisor, and for the last eight 
years as Advisor for the Sophomore Class. His 
hobby is in connection with amateur radio, and 
for several years he conducted a radio club in the 
school. 

As every student in the school knows, Mr. 
Hollis holds the "key" to many and many a sit- 
uation, and whether it is helping some unfortunate 
fellow get his locker open, or guiding an indi- 
vidual or a class along the best path, he always 
seems to know the most satisfactory solution.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY 

We, the members of the Junior Class, were 
heralded into the Waltham Senior High School 
one sunny day last September to travel our various 
courses for another year in our journey toward 
Seniorhood and graduation. Well broken in to 
school routine by an "apprenticeship" year as 
sophomores, it was an easy task, comparatively, to 
avoid the pitfalls which confront the younger 
members of the school. 

Numerous members of our class figured prom- 
inently in the various school organizations such as 
the Dramatic Club, Commercial Club, and so on, 
and the various sports such as football, basketball, 
baseball, and hockey. Nor were we laggards 
when it came to literary achievements for we 
Juniors had contributed about thirty eight percent 
of the articles appearing in the Spring Issue of 
the Mirror. We had thirty-one more articles than 
the Freshmen, nine more than the Sophomores, 
and even seven more than the lordly Seniors. 
Count 'em up and see for yourself! 

The highlight of the Junior Year has not yet 
taken place, but by the time this Commencement 
Issue is in your hands it will have burst forth in 
in all its glory. Of course, the Junior Prom is 
referred to, taking place this year on May 24. 
Under the leadership of Chairman "Ozzie" 
Falling it is bound to prove itself an even bigger 
success than it has ever been. 

And now here we are again at the end of an- 
other school year, getting ready to put one more 
year into the discard with a comfortable feeling 
that much has been learned during the course of 
it and the hope that, as seniors next year, we will 
put to effective use what knowledge we have ac- 
quired this year. 

Robert Healy, '41. 



SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY 

The Class of 1942, which began in the fall to 
participate in high school activities, became a unit 
after it had elected, early in the year its class 
officers. Also some of the Sophs entered into the 
following sports. 

FOOTBALL Sumner Goldman made the regu- 
lar team. Others such as George Sedercjuist,

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY 
History is being made by this, the class of '43, 
and how we have made that history shall soon be 
told, for that we are a most unusual class is our 
firm opinion (although the teachers may consider 
us unusual in a different fashion!) 

The first days at school showed us that we were 
as babes in the woods, for bewildering were the 
ways of the Senior High School with its one 
way stairs, double lunch periods, east and west 
wings, and numerous rooms. Once even has it 
been whispered that while seeking the Freshman 
Science Class we wound up in a Senior Biology 
Class! Be that as it may, our adaptable natures 
soon fitted in most serenely with normal school 
life, and we felt proud to be the first Freshman 
Class in the Senior High School for a very long 
time. 

It did not take us long to elect an efficient 



group of officers for our class, or to select :

appropriate class motto "In Omnia Paratus", and 
Prepared for All Things, we have proved we are. 

Although, in spite of careful preparations, we 
were unable to have a sleigh ride in January as 
we had planned (the weather man failed to co- 
operate), we did not lack for social entertainment. 
On March 15 we held a grand social, combined 
with the ninth grades of the South Junior and 
North Junior High Schools. The gala time was 
made even better through the fine rhythm and 
style of Charlie Bright's Orchestra. 

In addition to making a good showing on the 
Honor Rolls our class has been active in many 



other ways, too, for we have had eight members 
on the band or orchestra, two on the Dramatic 
Club, two on the football squad, three out for 
bowling, basketball, and field hockey, two out for 
tennis, and one out for hockey. 

With such a distinguished galaxy of stars in 
our midst our Sophomore year should be fully as 
history making as this, our Freshman, year.

FOOTBALL

Co-Captain, Fred Goguen 
Football this year was not quite up to par, but 
yet it furnished many a thrill. 

The team started off the season in fine fashion 
when it held a powerful and favored Rindge team 
to a scoreless tie. This was followed by a 12 — 7 
win over a plucky Agawam team, inserted in the 
schedule to fill an open date. 

When a strong Somerville outfit heralded by 
many as the team to beat, was held to a scoreless 
tie, and a weak but shifty Revere team was beaten 
24 — 0, hope ran high for a really good season. 

A tie with mediocre Haverhill somewhat damp- 
ened these hopes, which were revived by a win 
over Lynn English. Then came the Arlington 
steam roller and a win by Medford by a single 
touch down. 

A most satisfying win over Newton, followed 
by another victory over Providence Central seemed 
to indicate plenty of opposition for Brockton. 
But the Shoe Makers were far too strong and 
walked away with an easy win before the largest 
crowd of trie season. 




Co-Captain, Richard Johnstone 

The team had its full quota of stars with Dick 
Johnstone, a schoolboy punter without equal ; Bud 
Carter, hard running fullback; and Bill Manning, 
a pass snatching end modeled on the lines of 
Larry Kelley of Yale. Defensive standouts were 
linemen Fred Kennedy and Bob Nyholm and line 
backer Bingo Leaf. 

Bill Manning was elected next year's captain.

BASKETBALL 




The basketball team of the past season played 
in hard luck from the beginning to the end of 
the season. A defending champion team with 
six veterans, Waltham was the pre-season favorite. 
To the very end the team showed flashes of cham- 
pionship form, but a tendency to have one bad 
period in every game, and an inability to sink 
fouls and lay ups caused a disastrous season. 

Outstanding in defeat was Dead-eye Bobby 
Lane, capably supported by Rangy Bill Manning 
and Dick Bennett, both capable floor players. 
Captain Tob) MacDonald led the team in scoring. 

Veterans returning next year include Manning, 
Bennett, ,''kakle, Norton, Petrovitz, Demarais, 
Samuels, and Leaf.

HOCKEY 



The 1940 Hockey Team was unsurpassed by 
any team in the history of the Bay State League. 
The Crimson went through the regular season un- 
defeated and untied — a new record. Not until 
the last game in the play offs did they falter a 
trifle, but they finished with the best record in the 
league and won the C. V. Brown Trophy. 

Grant, Rousseau and Connor proved themselves 
definitely the best line in schoolboy hockey. Ken- 
nedy and Leaf (a pair of rugged defensemen) 
played smart, steady hockey, and had a great deal 
to do with the fine record compiled. Grant re- 
ceived the award for the Most Valuable Player.

BASEBALL 



BASEBALL 

As the Mirror goes to press, Waltham High's 
baseball team is still in the fight for the Suburban 
League baseball championship. With a record 
of seven wins and two defeats, the Watchmakers 
shaped up as the best baseball team in the past 
five years. With an almost veteran infield of 
Johnstone, Lane, Rousseau and Dion, added to i 
slugging backstop, Perley Grant, and "Basher 
Bill" Manning in the outfield, the team seems 
destined to go far. The chief danger is in the 
pitching department and "Bingo" Leaf, John 
Clancy, Bob Clark and Martin Coleman seem to 
have everything under control here. New comers 
Bud Carter and Seth Johnson are holding down 
the two remaining positions in approved style. 
The capable substitutes include such steady players 
as Billy Park and Jack Wolk. 

The summary to May 15th: 

Waltham Opponents 
Middlesex 5 2 

Newton 8 2 



TRACK 

With the graduation of George Wheeler last 
year Coach Brinn found himself this year almost 
without a place man except Capt. Ernie Frary, al- 
though a slight ray of hope was found in the per- 
son of Eddie Demaris, who is credited with a 56 
second quarter. Demaris and Rutter run the 
dashes, Capt. Frary is in the half and Eddie Caine 
in the mile. Dick Bennet has won several firsts 
in the broad jump and Chandnoit puts the shot. 
Others on the squad besides those mentioned in- 
clude Smelledge, Wanberg, Fair, Fancy, Rogers, 
Aliseo, Mogan, Falling, and Pendergast. Francis 
Dougherty is manager. Although the team has 
not won and may not win a meet this year, the 
outlook for next year is bright since all the track- 
men are underclassmen.

TENNIS TEAM 

The tennis team, a recent entrant into the 
Suburban League, has done surprisingly well in 
competition thus far this season with a win and 
loss total of four and two. 

The mainstay of this year's team is Don Skakle, 
playing in the no. one singles position. Besides 
Don in the singles Bud Carter has gained the no. 
two singles position and he divides his time be- 
tween tennis and baseball. The other top rank- 
ing singles players are: Bob Eaton, Nate Towne, 
Ted Millen and Harry Whalen. Most of these 
fellows will be back next year. 

In doubles Sumner Hammond and Bob LcBlanc 
have been most consistent in winning. They arc- 
supported by: Hollis Broderick and Bob Eaton, 
Bud Carter and Don Skakle, Joe and Paul Hill, 
Joe Holicker and George Olson, Bob Eaton and 
Ted Millen, Roger and Bob Gallagher. 

The team has various independant games listed 
and the two important ones are with Newton 
Seconds and St. Charles. At the close of the 
present season Mr. Gallagher plans to have tin- 
outstanding players participate in the State Tourn- 
ament at Winchester, Mass. 

The remaining teams in the league are: Bel- 
mont, Maiden, Melrose, Watertown, Lexington, 
Arlington and Winthrop. 

Paul Hill. 



GOLF 

Although the golf team, up to the Arlington 
match, had not attained a single victory, future 
prospects seem very promising. Almost the entire 
team consists of sophomores and juniors and the 
matches this year are laying the basis for a really 
good team next year. 

To date Nicholas Abramo has been No. 1 man 
with the rest of the team fighting it out for run- 
ner-up positions. The closest match was at Lex- 
ington where the team was just nosed out 5 to 4. 

At this writing no captain has been chosen, 
although Nick Abramo has been acting in that 
capacity. 

The team playing the first match consisted of 
Nick Abramo, Tom O'Brien, Eliot Leaf, Edward 
Demarais, Henry Joyal, and Larry Doyle. Others 
on the squad are: Toby MacDonald, Lawrence 
Rogers, William Tapply, Arthur Hagen, and 
Donald MacLennan.

The seniors were close behind, nevertheless, with 
a score of 8 points and the juniors, 7. Although 
the freshmen received no points during these in-

and a defeat; the juniors, a tie, and the sopho-

Newton, our lassies came home with two out of 
three victories for W. H. S. The annual alumnae 
game came out successfully with the varsity on 
top with a score of 18 — 14 which was partly the 
result of Rose Costellano's fine captaincy and the

and promises to be an even greater success next 



year. Freshmen are especially to be congratulated 
for their fine performance against more advanced 
competition. The summary:

and supervised by the Misses Sewall and Frost, it 
met defeat in all of its outside contests which con- 
sisted of two Weston games and a play day at 
Newton. But through fast stick work and co- 
operation of the entire team, good leadership of 
Captain Edna Mitchell and fine management of 
Gilda Sardi, our girls proved to both rivals that 
they had to work hard for their victories. The 
seniors, through more advanced practice and 
knowledge of the game managed to take the class 
title.

MIRROR ROOM AGENTS 
Among the "unsung heroes" of the Mirror are 
the Room Agents, who, throughout the year, 
struggled long and somewhat vainly at times, to 
achieve their quota of sales in their respective 
home rooms. Unable to be given recognition on

that their names will "go down to posterity" by

THE COMMERCIAL CLUB 

The Commercial Club is an organization for 
business students and is intended to combine so- 
cial contacts with business information in a way 
that will be both pleasurable and profitable. This 
year the Club was composed of over a hundred 
members who early in the year elected a group 
of officers that perfomed all duties efficiently and 
well. 

Seven meetings during the year were planned, 
of which two, at this writing, are still to be held: 
one, in the latter part of May, will consist of a 
vocational talk on How to Succeed in the Busi- 
ness World ; the other, in June, will take the 
form of a picnic and weenie roast on Prospect 
Hill. 

At three of the meetings, held in the Assembly 
Hall, motion pictures of skiing, Washington, D. 
C, and New York were shown. The Club also 
had the privilege of seeing as a preview the 
splendid picture of local industry and develop- 
ment "Waltham Marches On." Mr. Arnold, 




COMMERCIAL CLUB OFFICERS 
Seated: left to right, Pauline Galinauski, Secretary; 

Helen Hickey, Treasurer 
Standing: left to right, Sumner Hammond, Vice- 
President: Walter Foote, President. 

Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, gave a 

brief talk on business before the picture was 

shown. 

Mr. Slayton gave an interesting talk at the first 
meeting of the year. The second meeting, in 
December, was carried through in keeping with 
the Spirit of Christmas since a party at which 
there was a musical program, readings, and re- 
freshments provided everyone with a good time. 
Mr. Roche made up as a very excellent Santa 
Claus to distribute gifts. 

From first to last, the year was both profitable 
and enjoyable for all. To Mr. Lees, Advisor of 
the Club, should go much of the credit for its 
success. 







DRAMATIC CLUB OFFICERS 

Seated: left to right. Elizabeth Quigley, Sumner 

Hammond; Standing: left to right, Richard Keenan,

THE DRAMATIC CLUB 
Perhaps it is boasting slightly when we admit 
that we considered the Dramatic Club unusually 
successful this year. In the first place, member- 
ship reached the one-hundred mark, a sizable and 
convenient number, which included, besides 
seniors, a grand group of sophs and juniors just 



"oozing" with cooperation and enthusiasm. Sec 
ondly, our treasury was reassuringly full, a situa- 
tion which was greatly augmented by the success- 
ful presentation of three one-act plays in Decem- 
ber under the capable direction of Robert 
Clemence. 

Then, too, we considered ourselves exceedingly 
lucky with the exceptional amount of talent (just 
"gobs" of it!) hidden among modest members, 
and brought to light in the several entertainments, 
among which were an amateur show, puppet show, 
short skits, Christmas party, and novelty program, 
all sponsored by the club. 

The meetings, which were held the third 
Wednesday of each month; were presided over by 
the following officers: President Sumner Ham- 
mond, Vice-President Elizabeth Quigley, Secretary 
Richard Keenan, and Treasurer Betty Andrews. 
The members of the executive board, headed by 
Chairman Robert Clemence, were Patricia Claflin, 
Betty Andrews, Doris Whitcomb, Elizabeth Quig- 
ley, Clara Algeri, Doris Eastman, June Kellogg, 
Muriel Healey, Richard Keenan, Robert Healy, 
Robert Deacon, and Sumner Hammond. The 
group, as you see, was not only of upperclassmen, 
but representative of all other classes, a condition 
which prevailed throughout the club. 

And now on behalf of the club, we wish to ex- 
tend our sincere appreciation to our invaluable- 
faculty director, Miss Edith Rand, to our presi- 
dent Sumner Hammond, to Robert Clemence 
whose energy and spirit injected lots of sparkle 
into the organization this year and to all the other 
who showed their interest in the Dramatic Club. 

To next year's officers, President Robert Healy, 
Vice-president Wilma Winberg, Secretary Betty 
Eveler, and Treasurer Marie Murphy, we wish the 
best of luck and hope that they'll feel as com- 
pletely smug and satisfied with themselves at the 
end of next year as we do this! 

Betty Andrews, '40.
